Here's postgame reaction from Central Catholic's victory:

Lake Oswego punched their ticket into the 6A football championship with a 28-21 win over the Jesuit Crusaders in the evening match-up at Hillsboro Stadium. 

Casey Filkins, who spent most of the season at tailback, played QB for the fourth playoff game where he rushed for 110 yards on 30 carries and completed 13 of 27 passes for 225 yards and one score with one interception.

Filkins accounted for all three of Lake Oswego's first-half touchdowns. Senior Thomas Dukart had eight catches for 170 yards in the win. 

"You can't really put a game like this to words," Casey Filkins said postgame. "But, we're not satisfied."

Lake Oswego has the opportunity to go back to back years with a state title.
